and difficult. >> jennifer: so what do you think about the government's response to the disaster? >> lafayette people that we interviewed felt that the government response was poor to terrible and the relief was excellent. i think the city did an excellent job in evacuating the rockaways and the fatality rate was low for the storm of its magnitude. but coming from the fact that fema did not make its presence known until days after the storm, and people felt they were literally in the dark. it's a geographically isolated location and also socially disenfranchised. there are a lot of nursing homes and government housing projects there. i think they restored power in wall street and manhattan but they felt they were togetherren about. yet again. >> jennifer: do you think that there should have been a better--obviously do you think there should have been a better response. but what could government agencies at our level be doing better? frankly better help prepare for the next disaster. >> the question is what could they do better? >> jennifer: yes. >> so, i think that in the recent presidential d

the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. let's talk about it. really? you're going to lay people off because now the government is going to help you fund your healthcare. really? i want to have those conversations, not to be confrontational, but to understand what the other side is saying, and i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. do you share the sense of outrage that they're doing this, this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>i think that's an understatement, eliot. u>> i'm not prone tot. understatement, so explain to me why that is. i think the mob learned from wall st., not vice versa. >> there are so many unintended consequences. and for a country that's been at civil war for 4.5 decades our drug policy has been causing a lot of these peasant farmers to become alienated from the state. >> the sacrifice colombia does from fighting drugs is inordinate. the social damage is terrible. and most of the time destroyi

"we earned president clinton's respect by closing the government twice and being very rough and tumble. we showed we actually were willing to take the heat." mr. wistful himself. newt gingrich. then moving on to the fifth stage of grief. we finally reach the last one which is acceptance. the acknowledgement that i can't fight it. i might as well prepare for it. and, in fact, we're seeing signs that some of the more evolved republicans have reached that stage. a few dozen republicans have actually joined a bipartisan call to find a compromise. they signed a letter calling for the exploration of all options on taxes and entitlement programs. and today, one of them, kay granger of texas said that a demand to raise rates on top earners is, and this is her quote "just the right thing to do." representative mike simpson of idaho told bloomberg news "it's pretty obvious that obama won the election and he promised he was going to raise tax on the wealthiest and he said while it may be unpalatable, there is enough s

. >> jennifer: yeah, for sure. >> in state and local governments. the private sector has been adding jobs. but, of course, because of technology, and because of productivity change, companies can increase their output and increase their profits employment responds more slowly. >> jennifer: well, that to me is the biggest nut to crack. >> of course. yankees public and private sectors. >> all of this should be about employment. all of it should be. >> jennifer: laura tyson, thank you so much for joining us again inside "the war room" and for sticking your neck out on predictions. >> thank you. >> jennifer: even though we agreed 100 percent. up next jon meechum is here to tell us what thomas jefferson has to do two solving this fiscal cliff mess. and later mitt romney heads to the white house for the lunch date heard around the world those stories and much more ahead right here on "the war room." >> jennifer: we are back inside "the war room." i am jennifer granholm, thomas jefferson our face's third president, is know

in the government does have those connections. but also has another foot in the conservative movement, and has those conservative bona fides which dick army did which made him so appealing as head of that organization. >> jennifer: so many fascinateing developments on the far right. it's a good day to be a democrat. that's andy kroll. thank you so much for coming on "the war room." if alan west ever left the house of representatives some sort of of--how shall i say--some incident would be involved. then patrick murphy came and sent him alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> jennifer: back inside "the war room." i'm jennifer granholm. okay, i have a

nations do, but, again we alone in the g20 governor, are the only ones that let our government buy freely from other countries and we don't. and then we have to pay particular attention to our trade with china. >> jennifer: talk about that. what should we be doing to level the playing field? >> well, you had such a firsthand role in sort of turning around the automobile industry in the midwest with the bail out and unfairly, a lot of women and men in this country blamed the wages of the workers of michigan as an example for the problems of gm and chrysler. the reality governor, is that unfair trade is about 90% of the cost differential between a good manufactured in say michigan, ohio and its counterpart in china. and it's unfair trade. i am not -- i am very much a free trader as you are but i am very much as well a fair free trader and illegal subsubsudden is currency manipulation, environment practices that don't mirror the rest of the developed world are causing our manufacturing companies our manufacturing workers to

for anywhere. >> all right. >> right to work is about lessening worker's voice in government and the workplace. >> if it's not about economic development, is it more of a political action against the progressive movement? >> i absolutely thingk it is. we have seen all kinds of voter suppression, suppression of democratic rights. this is another example. the wealthy -- this is really driven by wealthy forces in michigan that you know well, the debos. family others dick debos, and they want the wealthy to get more and more and the workers to get less and less, to try to push us down to third-world level on wages and benefits. it's outrage ooze. it shows the tremendous -- actually we did him 10 days of really fruitful discussions about how to change the dynamics in michigan, how to change the climate, with the governor, with the head of the senate, the head of the house. then the right-wing pressure came down and the governor n my view, caved to that pressure. >> but i heard that one of the entities also funding this in addition to the bill yon air,
